Working from home

Hubby worked from home yesterday so we had a quick lunch together in between his phone calls.

I cooked salmon fillets with stir fried peppers and quinoa

I made a marinade with a dash of soy sauce, ginger paste and olive oil for the salmon. I spread it on the top of the fillets and poached on a medium heat in the microwave for 5 minutes.

I stir fried a supermarket pack of mixed peppers, carrots, shredded green cabbage and beansprout.

I used a merchant gourmet pack of quinoa which cooks in 40 seconds.

A brilliant quick and balanced meal.

Once again half eaten before I remembered to photograph it!

Bin day today so last night hubby took the kitchen drawers out that we have in plinth space under the units and I hoovered the debris! I found Lego, marbles and bits of a card  game and a bit of dust!

These drawers are a brilliant use of space. Unfortunately they cant be fitted without disassembling the units as they fit on the unit legs before they are fitted but are worth keeping in mind if you are getting a new fitted kitchen soon.  I have them under most of the kitchen units and store skinny flat stuff like table mats, chopping boards, recipe books, food bags, cling film, foil, rolling pin, keys etc!


  1. Yay! Another yummy meal to try. My Spinach and Lentil Dahl was a right flop, but I will try it again...once I think my hubby has forgotten what it was like the first time...HeHe!!

  2. Oh dear sorry the dahl was a disaster!

    The birthday cake I made last week was more biscuit than cake as it did'nt really rise!

    The Don Aslett books are a brillaint read and available from amazon if you cant get them from a local library
